This was oK. If you're into the blues and jazz, maybe you'll get more out of this then I did. Nice shots of the Southern US though.

It's Fred's healing power, his need, his nuture. This is an example of how music can be as beneficial for the artist not just financially but it also can heal the soul. The soul what happened to the soul in music.

A truly wonderful film. Shows what Mississippi was like in the 1960s, and features one of the greatest blues musicians of all time, Mississippi Fred McDowell.
